The open highways here in the United States and across the globe are always apt to boast a generous amount of recreational vehicles. The RV’s, unmistakable due to their size and boxy appearance, have also been responsible for the rise in trailer parks around the nation for decades. Of course, there are those travelers who aren’t fans of RV’s because of the style. Hence, there are now newer designs that are out to catch the eyes of the more avant-garde travelers.
One recreational trailer in particular has stirred up quite a buzz. It’s known as the Hutte Hut Trailer, and while the name conjures up a quick reference to Jabba The Hutt from Star Wars (admit it, you thought about it), its concept and overall look is definitely out of this world.
The trailer is the creation of Brian and Katrina Manzo, the husband and wife duo behind Sprouting Sprocket Studio, based in Carpinteria, California. Inspiration for the Hutte Hut came about from a trip they made to Amsterdam which saw them stay at the citizenM Centraal, a unique hotel property composed of 200 cargo shipping containers. Looking to provide an enjoyable traveling experience that would incorporate natural materials and a whimsical exterior, they came up with the Hutte Hut and showed off the prototype this past December.
When you look at the Hutte Hut for the first time, you can’t help but notice how it resembles a yurt nestled upon the steppes of Mongolia. The dome shape is formed by a sturdy canvas roof, and the body of the trailer is crafted from wood. There is heavy attention paid to having an abundance of natural light within to really enhance the rapturous feeling of being outdoors. The wood and canvas combination is also a nod to the creators’ goal of producing an eco-friendly camper. In addition, the Hutte Hut can serve as a backyard retreat when not in tow on the roads.
As of now, however, there is no word as to when the Hutte Hut will be mass-produced to the public, but Sprouting Sprocket has said that future Huts could be made via a computerized wood-cutting machine.
